Q: When should I start my Petunias indoors for spring planting?

A: When deciding when to start your Petunias you should first consider when your frist frost free day occurs in the spring occurs. Once you know this simply subtract 13-15 weeks. For example if your first frost free day is May 20th then you should start your petunias indoors between February 1st and February 15th.

Q: How much seed, or how many packets of seed do I require for my garden?

A: The amount of seed you will require depends on how many different varieties you are planting and the size of your garden. A rule of thumb is that each packet of seed should be enough for a 20 - 25 ft. row and there should be 1.5 to 2 ft spacing between rows.

Q: Can I use the seed I harvested form some of my vegetables last year to plant my garden this year?

A: The seed from vegetables that are open pollinated will grow true to form. However, seed harvested from hybrid varieties will not produce the same plant. Instead they will revert to one of the parent plants. This may be interesting but the fruit may not be to your liking.
